I find this parallel discussion on the list and using the bugzilla 
comment system a bit inconvenient. I see a certain point in having the 
discussion neatly archived with the bug report, but the bugzilla 
message system is very clumsy to use.

For instance, if I write something there and you reply to it I get an 
e-mail, which is fine. But if then someone replies to your point, only 
you get an e-mail and I will never know that the discussion has been 
updated except by specifically looking for the discussion on this bug. 
This does not seem a very efficient way of communicating to me.

I have just found a couple of discussions relating to my code on 
bugzilla (e.g., bug #1066), but only by coincidence. I would really 
prefer to have discussions like that on the list. There are quite a 
few important decisions to be taken regarding font support but I fear 
we will not get very far when discussing them in difficult to find 
comment lists attached to various bugs all over the place.
